Through the Ohio Dentist Loan Repayment Program, qualifying applicants may be able to have some of their student loan debt forgiven in exchange for working in areas that are considered to be in shortage according to the Ohio Department of Health. ODLRP dentists have been contracted through this program and agree to provide dental services for patients without regard to the patient’s ability to pay; other criteria are also stipulated through the contract. ODLRP dentists receive repayment for dental student loan debt at pre-determined amounts agreed upon in their individual contracts.
